I’m a newbe in dynare and I’ve problem in running parallel computation (only locally).
OS Win8, Dynare 4.3.3, Matlab 2011a and 2013b.
PsTools in “C:\Windows” (PsExec already run; dynare.ini in “C:\Users\MyLaptop\AppData\Roaming” and in C:\Users\MyLaptop\AppData" (the first because MATLAB requires so, the second because of the manual).
The text in the dynare.ini is :
Name = local
Members = n1
Name = n1
ComputerName = localhost
CPUnbr = 2
If I try to run one of the examples with parallel options
dynare RBC_Est parallel parallel_test I get this message back (by the way, after some warning messages of conflicting function for “ilu” “ordeig” “bsxfun”):

Do you know where the problem is? Furthermore, the CPU is an i7 dual core dual threading: can I set 4 CPUs?
